GO Your Own Way

GO Your Own Way (GYOW) is an option for students wishing to fulfill the cross-cultural requirement in a way not already offered by the Office of Cross-Cultural Programs. This experience needs to be a minimum two-week immersion in a cultural setting different form one's own and can be completed either in a foreign country or within the United States.

In the past, students who have decided to GYOW have participated in cross-cultural service trips, cross-cultural internships, a summer program through an outside vendor, or have taken summer classes in a cross-cultural setting. Students who would like to do this option must submit a proposal in which they address how the program would fulfill the school's cross-cultural requirement and learning goals. 

Below are a few examples of past students' GYOW programs.
